Kuala Lumpur - Maybank today announced that the President Director of PT Bank Internasional Indonesia Tbk (BII), Dato Khairussaleh Ramli has tendered his resignation from BII, to return to Malaysia for personal reasons.


Dato’ Khairussaleh was appointed by shareholders as President Director of BII in January 2012.


BII President Commissioner, Tan Sri Megat Zaharuddin Megat Mohd Nor, who is also Chairman of Maybank, said, “I am sad to hear Dato’ Khairussaleh's decision, especially after noting his contributions to grow BII in the Maybank Group. But we have to respect his personal wishes.”


“BII has gone through several consecutive quarters of sterling growth, amidst a challenging operating environment, and its transformation to be the leading relationship bank in its communities continues,” added Tan Sri Megat. "An interim Officer-in-Charge, Thila Nadason, currently Finance Director of BII is appointed to handle the company's day-to-day operations to deliver our business targets and stakeholder relationships, whilst the Board of Commissioners hasten the process of finding a new President Director.”


BII will make an appropriate announcement on who the new President Director will be in due course, once necessary regulatory approvals have been secured.
